Middlebrook Pike United Methodist Church in Knoxville, TN


Middlebrook Pike United Methodist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee has roots that can be traced back to the early 1900s. Over the years, attendance has steadily grown and it soon became time to upgrade the sound system in the church. Justin Haynes, the music director at the church, got in contact with M&L Sound of Knoxville, TN to help accomplish the task.

M&L Sound is a full service Audio and Video company that provides concert touring, rental equipment, and engineered installation services. M&L Sound knows that the most important thing about any audio system, especially at a church, is the midrange. The midrange is where the sound from a voice resides. A sound system is not much good if you cannot hear what is being said.

When Middlebrook explained to M&L that they needed a high performance, compact, line array to cover their space, M&L knew where to find what they needed. ISP Technologies’ High Definition Line (HDL) 2208. The HDL 2208 packs large sound into a small package, featuring two 8 inch woofers and one 1.4 inch neo compression driver, all powered by an internal amplifier with 850 watts of RMS power.

ISP Technologies pays particular attention to the midrange in all of the speakers that they manufacture. They would not even manufacture the HDL 2208, a 2 way cabinet, until they discovered how to do it in a way that protected the critical midrange of the sound. Due to this, the HDL 2208 has outstanding vocal clarity from a 2 way box!

Middlebrook Pike United Methodist Church had one more challenge for ISP to accomplish before they pulled the trigger on the HDL 2208’s, they wanted the cabinets to be white to blend into the church’s decor. However, that was no problem for ISP! All of ISP’s speaker cabinets are built to order and are available in several custom color choices.

M&L Sound performed the installation of 12 HDL 2208’s and now Middlebrook Pike United Methodist Church has a rocking sound system that blends in flawlessly and will handle everything that they can throw at it!
